The Future of Applied Geocomputation. Public Participation in Geocomputation to Support. With 18 chapters, the book runs to over pages and so has the appropriate depth to cover a diverse, active and fast-evolving field. AgentBased Modeling and Geographical Information. Contents About the Authors.

In particular, his work geocomputatiin extended a tradition of area classification within Geography where he has developed an empirically informed critique of the ways in which geodemographic methods can be refined for effective yet ethical use in public resource allocation applications.

Each chapter has a different author, and includes topics such as spatial data visualisation with R, agent-based modelling, kernel practiacl estimation, spatial interaction models and the Python Spatial Analysis library, PySAL.

He studied Mathematics at the University of Durham and Medical Statistics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, and has worked in a number of universities, holding the Chair in Human Geography at Liverpool University before taking up his current position.


This is the applied primer for Geocomputation in the social sciences. His research interests are in health, crime and environmental data analysis, and in the development of spatial analytical tools, including Geographically Weighted Regression approach.


Geocomputation is the use of software and computing power to solve complex spatial problems. He also has interests in the software tools used to develop such approaches, including R.

Kernel Density Estimation and Percent Volume. Each chapter includes a worked example with step-by-step instructions. Geographical Agents in Three Dimensions. All chapters are uniform in design and each includes an introduction, case studies, conclusions – drawing together the generalities of the introduction geocompitation specific findings from the case study application — and guidance for further reading.

The book acts both as a reference guide to the field and as a guide to help you get to know aspects of it. This student focused book:. I wrote a chapter in the book, on open source GIS.

This accessible text has been specifically designed for those readers who are new to Geocomputation as an area of research, showing how complex real-world problems can be solved through the integration of technology, data, and geocomputational methods.

The book has only just been published and I was able to slip in brand new screenshots and slightly updated instructions just before publication, as QGIS 2. Chapters provide highly applied and practical discussions of: Microsimulation Modelling for Social Scientists. Integrates supporting materials in each chapter, such as code and data, enabling readers to work through the examples themselves.
